is still well above the national average. wolf. >> jim acosta joining us, thanks very much. let's dig deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, this unemployment number, the new number, how important is it to each of these two candidates? >> well, first of all it's got to be a real boost for president obama as jessica was talking about earlier. if not reality, then also a real psychological boost to get below that 8% figure. very important to them. because what it does, wolf, is it plays into the poll numbers that we've already been seeing, which is that people believe that things are getting better. the numbers are still not where the president wants them to be. but if it plays into a sense of optimism in this country, that's very good for the president. but overall you're going to hear the same refrain from both campaigns. the president's going to say that he's added more than 5 million jobs, and mitt romney's going to say there's still 23 million unemployed. >> you've spent a lot of time covering mitt romney. you did that excellent documentary all of

's our most innovative altima ever. ♪ >>> well, jim, when it comes to jobs, president obama prefers what i call a trickle down government solution. now, my plan is different. it involves 41 basic elements, 6 abrupt reversals of positions and 3 outright lies. >> we're back for political comedians the presidential debate is the gift that keeps on giving and nobody does it better than "saturday night live." this week's show tapped into the zeitgeist of last wednesday's debate, romney stretching the truth and obama not catching him. let's watch. >> the anniversary gift, i can't believe i forgot the anniversary gift. okay. i'll be out of here by 9:00 local time. i have the secret service distract michelle while i hit the hotel gift shop for some kind of anniversary president. they had a denver broncos sweatshirt. she might like that. the hotel had some nice bathrobes for sale. that could be good. >> excuse me, governor, mr. president? >> i'm sorry, yeah, yeah. what's up? >> mr. president, governor romney has just said that he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> no, you two g
allen and jim vandehei write but maybe there's a straining to find a more biz zanty explanation than is necessarily the case. to question that ann romney was unhawpe with what was happening to her husband as any reasonable wife would be, given the way he was being portrayed and allowing people to portray himself. there's, you know, losing campaign, which the romney campaign was until the debate in denver, there's always a lot of second guessing and it started early in this campaign. she clearly has made her feelings known in a very direct way. the part of the story about tagg romney's involvement which is that he's playing this much bigger role in the campaign, i'm a little more dubious about that on the basis of some of my reporting but i think there's no question that his family has been much more involved in general over the course of the last month than it had been for the last year and a half. >> so this rumor that stu stevens has been elevated to the sidelines poppy cook. >> i'm comfounded of references of stu stevens because i don't know who that is. but yes, no in terms of st
diminish himself? >> that is why he didn't do it the other night, he was waiting for jim lehrer to ask the tough questions. >> i think high lost his game and nerve in that debate. >>gregg: he will bring up the next time they talk about domestic policy, the 47 percent remark. >> what romney did was smart the he acknowledged we all make mistakes. i misspoke, it happens, it takes it off the table for most. not everyone. but it was the right thing to do going on sean hannity. >>gregg: and bain capital, going office that does it resonate? >> this is an audience of people who will ask the question. they do not like negative campaigning. if the president goes this way i am telling you, if i were romney, this is a dream if you do it right. >>gregg: he could pick up votes, if he hangs out with stacey keebler. >> she may not be hanging out much longer with george clooney. >>gregg: you guys have yankee ties on, right? you were there monday night? you are the good luck charm. >> we got them in the playoffs and we need to get them in the series. >>gregg: thanks so you. more our campaign insiders ev
claim the moderator, jim lehrer are of pbs was basically too right-wing and acting in concert with the romney campaign somehow, which is denial to a level that is truly amusing. bill: if that is the one observation you have i'mcuriousu observe this. this is al gore talking about the altitude in colorado, specifically the city of denver. roll this. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today, just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> and you only have a few hours to adjust. >> that is interesting. >> i don't know, maybe --. bill: did you hear that voice in the background, that's interesting? now, it is true, and it is factual he left vegas around 2:00 in the afternoon. but just on the face, what do you think of that? >> well that may be its effect on vice president gore. i think the president is in peek physical condition. i think he could probably handle 5,000 feet. this is why the president had a problem in the macro explanation, is, people like al gore, suck up to the president. every presi
